Urban athletes and fitness-minded guests are welcome at Avenue Hotel
Urban athletes enjoy Copenhagen
We appreciate how important it is to stay in shape when you are travelling, and very often running, cycling or skating is a great way to get a new, interesting and more intimate angle on a city and its inhabitants. Copenhagen is full of possibilities for urban athletes and below we present a couple of our favourite options.
Get a discount at our local gym
We collaborate closely with our local gym, Fitness World Forum, a five stories modern gym, flooded with natural light and a wide range of free weights, machines and team activities.
Enquire at our reception about one-day passes at DKK 75 (regular price DKK 100).
Fitness World Forum is a leisurely five-minute walk from our front door.
Run with the locals
The nearby lakes (in Danish ‘Søerne’) are very popular with local joggers, come rain come shine. If you take all five lakes the distance is 6.5 kilometres, if you are less ambitious you will find a route planner at the web site of our local experts on running, Marathon Sport
If you want to run with some of the locals Marathon Sport organizes meet-ups every Monday and Friday at 5 pm.
By the lake between Åboulevard and Gl. Kongevej, Skt. Jørgens Sø, you will find basic outdoor fitness equipment. Ask at the reception and they will direct you.
Explore Copenhagen by bike
Do as the locals, travel around Copenhagen on bike.
Enquire at the reception about renting our bikes and the routes for exploring the different districts.
And remember to read about our former guest, Eia Marx’s, experiences when she travelled around Copenhagen on bike with her kids
Friday Night Skate
Every second Friday throughout the summer the organizers of Friday Night Skate guide you through the streets of Copenhagen on a free, open-for-all tour of our fair city. The tour is 18 to 21 kilometres, depending on the route, and as you run in the middle of the streets you are safeguarded by MC police as well as “flying nurses” (they are on skates as well) carrying first aid-equipment.
